DATAIR's Pandemic Actions

On Friday March 13, 2020 Illinois Governor J. B. Pritzker requested that employers in the state, with employees able to work from home, voluntarily do so. DATAIR responded by transitioning 90% of our staff to work from home beginning Monday March 16.

On the following Friday, March 20, the Governor issued an executive order that required non-essential businesses to close if employees could not work exclusively from home with limited exceptions. As a result, all DATAIR staff is now working remotely. The order currently extends through April 30, 2020.

To better facilitate the distribution of support and other requests, please direct your request to [email protected], or leave a voicemail at (630) 325-2600.

We appreciate your patience during this time. Stay home and stay safe.
